My thoughts on writing:
1. Read- we become better writers if we read and explore other authors works and examine their writing style and the like.
2. Practice- You don't become a great writer over night. It takes lots of work. And as the old saying goes, "Practice makes perfect"
3. Revise & Review- Let's face it. Nothing comes out perfect the first time. So whenever you finish writing something, reread and make corrections. Rearrange, delete, change, or add are the basics of revising. This step is also crucial in the writing process too.
4. Accept & reflect on feedback- Whether it's criticism or praise or both, you should always show your work to the others and let them give you their opinion. If they think it is terrible and full of mistakes, don't get mad. Just nod and listen before blowing a fuse. Most people who criticize are trying to help you, not hurt you. Still, if you get criticized harshly, shut them up and get back to your writing. Make it the best piece you can.
5. Learn grammar, punctuation, & spelling- It will not kill you to learn or review grammar and spelling. If you don't capitalize or you capitalize too much, pick up a damn grammar book and skim through it. If you can get the fundamentals down, know the rules, and practice. Your writing will have better flow, make it easier for the reader to read, and give the sentence a clear meaning.
